To celebrate the quarter-century of its digital mixers, Yamaha Commercial Audio Europe is running a unique photo competition, with an LS9-32 console among the 25 prizes to be won.

YCAE is inviting European residents to help mark the anniversary by sharing or taking photographs of Yamaha digital consoles in the most interesting and entertaining settings over the past 25 years.

Rather than necessarily seeking perfectly composed images, the company is looking for innovative, characterful images of consoles at the musical coalface.

The competition runs from 1 September to 31 December 2011, with a celebrity judge choosing the winning photographs in January. The winning photographer will receive a Yamaha LS9-32 digital mixing console; 23 runners-up will win a Yamaha Pocketrack digital recorder.

A special 25th prize will be chosen from the ten most ‘liked’ entries published on Yamaha Commercial Audio Europe’s Facebook page. From those ten, a select panel of audio industry experts will select the recipient of a Yamaha MCR-040 portable hi-fi system.

For more details, complete terms and conditions, and an entry form, visit www.facebook.com/YamahaCommercialAudioEurope.
